Responding to the Goring Neighbourhood Plan consultation

The draft Goring Neighbourhood Plan has been published, and includes ‘a plan for the future of the school’ as a Strategic Project:

The strategic project should determine any need for upgraded, extended or new facilities in Goring Primary School and the best way to provide these, compliant with the Plan Spatial Strategy and Policies. Subject to consultation, the preferred option should be put forward to the relevant planning authority if appropriate (SODC or a subsequent iteration of the Goring Neighbourhood Plan). (p. 91)

While making the school a Strategic Project is a very positive move, the Plan could go further in taking the opportunity to improve such a key part of Goring’s infrastructure. To this end, and at the request of the New School for Goring campaign group, the document 'Respond to the NP' below sets out some suggested responses to the consultation, as well as details about how to submit responses. The deadline is 5pm, Wednesday 13th December.


Dear Parents and Carers

On 9th June 2017 the school governors in conjunction with the Diocese of Oxford submitted a full proposal for a new school site and building to the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group.

The covering letter and proposal are available below as is the presentation to parents and carers which took place in February 2017.

We hope that you can take the time to look through the proposal. If you have any questions please speak to any of the governors or email

Yours sincerely 

The Governors
